What will I learn?

**Why study this course?**This course combines the insights of psychology with those of sociology, enabling you to better understand human behaviour and the different genetic, biological, individual, social and developmental factors that can influence it. You’ll have the opportunity to specialise in areas of interest, such as ethnicity, youth and workplace psychology. **More about this course**This joint honours degree will allow you to look at human behaviour from two different perspectives. Psychology integrates theory and evidence-based knowledge from areas including genetics, biology, individuality and development. Sociology looks at contemporary social issues, practical sociological research and social relations. Over the course of this degree you’ll develop an understanding of both disciplines and gain the essential research and analytical skills required in both subjects. You’ll look at humans as individuals and communities, while exploring issues that are becoming increasingly relevant in today’s society such as global inequality, gender and sexuality and religion.This degree offers the best of both worlds. While not a qualifying psychology degree, it opens doors for further study and a career in a wide range of sectors. It will equip you with an understanding of social themes, as well as practical and transferable skills that are applicable within any sphere of your work life. If you’re interested in becoming a qualified psychologist, you’ll be able to complete a conversion degree after graduation.You’ll have the opportunity to undertake a work placement in your third year, giving you the chance to gain valuable hands-on experience. In the past, our students have completed relevant placements in public and third sector organisations such as the NHS, Notting Hill Genesis and St Mungo’s. We’re a tight-knit course group, which means we’re able to offer you outstanding support during your studies. You’ll experience support from fellow students on the course and through one-to-one meetings with your academic tutor. As a student of London Met you’ll also gain access to a range of services including career advice.
